Digitimes reports that HP will launch a tablet running Palm's WebOS operating system this October. Citing Monty Wong, vice president of personal computing systems group at HP Taiwan, the website says the company will use WebOS for tablets and smartphones but not for netbooks. Wong says HP will reveal more details in July, after its acquisition of Palm has been signed and sealed.
The news comes after HP allegedly axed the Windows 7 version of its HP Slate. Originally scheduled for a June launch, it would appear that if not canceled, the device has been put on hold. Wong says the Slate will launch in October with "a wide range of software and application support" but failed to mention if it will run WebOS.
I will buy one
No bit torrent, but you can print via documents to go and play flash games :)
Wonder when a Windows tablet will come. Having the functionality to remote into my work desktop will monumentally speed up a lot of tasks at work. But knowing my luck, no remote desktop functionality will be added to a Windows tablet, and yet someone will probably design an app for the WebOS/iPad that will. Oh well.
I want it to play back videos that I have previously acquired via bit torrent
Not be forced to pay for all my video content from iTunes
Print via documents? WTF? Can I install my printer or not?
If I have a bunch of photos I want to be able to edit, crop, remove redeye, preferably after I have installed Photoshop (if it allows me) then I want to be able to attach my USB printer and print them out.
Can it do that?
Yes? Get one
No? Get bent
